Dear Divine Family,
Welcome to the website for the international celebration of Shri Adi Shakti Puja 2021.
For the first time after a long break, we will be able to come together again to worship our Divine Mother in the holy lands of Cabella.
In order to ensure the required health and safety standards, the events will take place under well-defined and monitored protocols. Please refer to the Casa Madre website for the full overview of the measures in place. Note that in view of these protocols, it is mandatory to pre-register before going to Cabella.
We invite all those who are not travelling to Cabella, to join the celebrations online. Below you will find the information about the program and the links to all the activities.
We Sahaja Yogis of the world, surrender again and again to our mother Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi with full hearts of love and devotion.
Jai Shri Mataji !!
Theme of the Puja is Spiritual Ascent
We are all on the path of spiritual ascent and looking to Mother for guidance. Indeed as Mother reminds us, we need to keep looking upwards to be able to rise.
“We have to look upward. Those who are standing even on a lower staircase, if they are looking upward they are all right, but those who are standing at higher steps and looking downward will go down. So look forward.
What we have to do in our day-to-day life in simple relationships – even husband, wife, children, parents – are you becoming silent within yourself? Are you nourishing it, with your silence, with your compassion or you are supporting something that is absolutely anti-God?
If you become the ideals, the power of ideals itself will make you so dynamic that you don’t need to consult anybody, you become the ideal. They are like torches. Your ideals themselves will be enlightened. So the first attitude should be: “How do we deepen ourselves?” That should be the first attitude.”
— Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, November 6th, 1983
Pearls of Recognition Project
Often we tell very precious and unique stories of how we found Sahaja Yoga and how we received this precious gift of Self-Realization. This time, we would like to highlight the moments when we recognized Shri Mataji as She is. How was it for you? Did it happen immediately or was it a slower process? What was that special moment you will always remember when Mother touched your heart?
We have collected all your unique and beautiful stories of recognition – watch them here 🙏 😊
“The first thing in today’s modern Sahaja Yoga, you have to know that you have to recognize Me.
That is very important. Very humbly, I have to tell you – you have to recognize Me and you have to respect Me and love Me.”
“So recognition only means, doesn’t mean that you recognize Me as Adi Shakti, but recognition means that in every part of your life, you should know that I am with you.”
— Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Christmas Puja: “Recognition”, December 27th 1994
“And the more you show that recognition, the more you realise it, you get higher and higher, not only spiritually, but every way, mentally, socially, economically, politically.”
“So just behind this recognition is all the powers … But if you are doubting still, halfway this, that, then things won’t be all right. You shouldn’t worry about your reputation. Just go with full speed into any direction knowing one thing, that you are my child and that I am Adi Shakti. Everything that looks horrible will become better.
Don’t worry about anything! Just know that I am the Adi Shakti. That all the powers of God and Goddesses and all that are within me, and they are within me and they are all looking after you. But if that recognition is not there, they are not going to recognise you either.”

“We should stop fighting amongst ourselves, for petty things. I am watching Yuva Shakti and their activities.”

On the Saturday evening before Shri Adi Shakti Puja weekend
As a result of a strong desire to compose and perform classical (and fusion) music for Shri Mataji, it was born the Adi Shakti Oratorium, a very special Evening Program of a little more than 1 hour.
For this very first edition there are 6 or 7 composers involved: Jutta Hille Ostermann, Patricia Proenza, Deborah Eckman, Dmitry Orlov, Carlo Gizzi, Andreas van Engelen and 1 or 2 more still pending.
It is strongly advised, and worth it, to connect your device to a proper stereo system and your video out to TV or beamer.
Puja week program and links
Please notice that all times are in CEST (Cabella Time)
From last year
“…if you are here to gain lots of ascending steps, you have to have your eyes upward and not downward. You must see what steps there are. You have to climb up those steps. With these steps where do you enter? I tell you, in that beautiful garden – the fragrant, garden of yourself, which is so beautiful.”
